    Track. 26 – The New Doctor is The Demo Version Of The Eleventh Doctor’s Theme And Is Only Used At The Cliffhanger Of The End Of Time Part Two.

    The Eleventh Doctors Theme used Throughout Series 5 Will be On The Series 5 Soundtrack.

    also wikapedia have the specials soundtrack details up and they list Track 25. Vale as the doctors theme variation from immeditatly after vale decem. if so that links in the next track afterwards 26. The New Doctor. so its save to say that Disk 1 Track 1 “Vale” is the sad ood song when the doctor says his goodbyes to his companions. which is a nice way of opening the soundtrack. im DEFFINATLY Looking forward to its fast approching release YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY. lol.

    Song for ten reprize is the track used in the end of time part 2 when the doctor drops wilf off at the nobles house and the doctor says to get my reward. listen from when donna wakes up to when the doctor says to get my reward and you will hear a slow version of song for ten similar to what was used for sarah jane’s theme in school reunion, and then it apparently goes into a big orchestral version with drums, trumpets, horns and a choir according to murrays twitter.

    Theres An Error With The Disk 2 Track listing.
    If These Tracks Go In order Which it looks like it, then It Should Go
    Track 24. Vale Decem Then 26. The New Doctor. Because I Dont Remember Any Other Cue Inbetween That. It Went From The Regeneration Music Through To Matt Smiths Guitar Cue.

    So Is This An Error Or Is 25. Vale The Part That plays After The Doctors Theme And While he Regenerates. but if thats the case why split up a track that plays all the way through. thought i’d say this as its an error probably. sounds intresting anyway…

    @BooBoo And If They Can Make Cover Art Like The Specials Showing All The Characters They Can make One For The Series 1 – 4. And It Can Be Like The Best Tracks From Series 1 – 4 Of the 10th Doctors Era. its the last chance before we move into the 11th doctor era when it comes to music. because the series 5 soundtrack is certainly gunna happen. and when they release that i dont think they will go back to series 1-4 after that. which is a shame because we will never hear clean good quality peices of our favourite Music.

    They Missed Out Tracks Like Warriors of Sontar And Subwave network.

    yes there are a lot of really good tracks missing from series 1-4, they could almost bring out another album with them all, I’m sure there would be a demand.

    August 11th, 2010 - 12:07pm

    According To Murray Gold, He Wasnt Happy With What They Put On The Series 4 Soundtrack Hense The Missed Out Tracks Like Warriors of Sontar And Subwave network. So He Made A Stand To SilvaScreen Saying That Future Doctor Who Soundtracks Would Be Under His Control And He Says That We Deserve More Tracks Than Silvascreen Put On The others. Hense Why We Now Have Our First 2 Disk Soundtrack. And Series 5 Might Also Be That Too.

    August 11th, 2010 - 11:30am

    @alex Why Not Get This One? It Has Some Best Memorable Tracks. And Im Sure Some Favourites From The Other Specials Besides The End Of Time. although series 5 would be a great soundtrack for amys theme doctors theme silurian theme etc. but im deffinatly gunna get this. infact im ordering it from an online shop called galaxy four. this is going to be So AWESOME 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

    WOOOOOOOOOOOW. now THATS A Great Selection. By The Looks Of Disk 2 It Has EVERY Track Used In The End Of Time. NICE. Im Deffinatly Pre ordering This. Its Gunna Be Wicked To Listen Too. I Wonder If “Vale” is That Sad Ood Song That Plays When David Sees His Companions One Last Time Towards The End Of The End Of Time Part 2? I Hope So. Makes Sense Seeing As It Goes “Vale” then “Vale Decem”. BRING ON 20th SEPTEMBER
